Re: Gnome window scaling; Wayland?

Since it seems like you’ve got this settled, I just have one minor question: why are you running Nouveau? You should be installing the NVIDIA driver in order to get the best performance possible.

Also, nice to see another CG guy around, I’m also a Maya user :)

Cheers,
Mike

Re: [SOLVED] GNOME Extensions post-Firefox Quantum

I completely forgot JQ was in EPEL, missed that when I was reviewing everything. The browser-plugin was interesting in the past. When using it you didn’t have to install any browser extension. Firefox 52(?) would be natively supported without any explicit add-one or what have you. That’s why chrome-...

Re: GNOME Extensions

Okay, got it working. I had to uninstall the gnome-shell-browser-plugin and also install the Firefox extension from the Extensions site. Then it started working in Firefox ESR. Thanks for the help! The python-txrequests package isn't necessary.

Cheers,
Mike

Re: GNOME Extensions

Interesting, I'll have to try again. I notice that you have python-txrequests in your list. Is there a reason you're using this over base python-requests ? It seems logical that you shouldn't need 3rd-party (even though it's EPEL) packages to use a (should be) native toolset. Maybe I need to uninsta...

GDM Bottoming out on Lock/Login Screen

For some reason over the past week I've been having some issues with GDM on both my desktop at work (RHEL 7.5) and my workstation at home (CentOS 7). They are both two very different hardware configurations but are demonstrating identical symptoms and issues. For some reason after locking the deskto...

Re: Yum/rpm not suitable for overlayfs?

I’ve been messing with containers (for HPC) and in doing a bit of research most issues with yum and overlay seem to be fixable by installing yum-plugin-ovl in the container. Not sure if that’ll fix the issue you’re having but it might be a start.

Re: Broke my centos7 VPS when trying to update Python

Are you running as root or using sudo? If yes, try removing the symbolic link completely (rm python) then recreate it with python2.

Re: Broke my centos7 VPS when trying to update Python

Assuming none of these commands rely on Python, you should be able to:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/bin
ln -sf python2 python

Re: updating a server from CentOS 6.10 to Centos 7.4

Initially I was surprised that CentOS didn’t get the upgrade tool that RHEL had. But on reviewing the tool for a potential migration on our cluster, it only supports and handful of packages/groups during the upgrade. Unless you’re running a very minimal install, it’s almost not even worth it. Reprov...
